Perhaps related is application/rss+xml, where a case is made to have this 
media type apply to multiple versions of RSS [1].

The IANA considerations section of [2] specifies an optional parameter:

revision

       The optional revision parameter indicates the integer version of
       RSS used; the value is specified by the target RSS version.

SOAP 1.2 [3] definition of application/soap+xml does not define a revision 
parameter.
